The Cornhuskers may have started the season in as terrible a fashion as anyone could’ve imagined, but there’s nothing like getting your first win of the year—even if it game in Week 8.
Bethune-Cookmam has gone .500 on the year, losing its most recent game against North Carolina A&T but winning its previous three before that.
Lines have not been set for this contest as of this writing; check back soon, but for now, a full preview of the contest taking place Saturday afternoon.
If you just looked at the records entering Saturday, you’d be crazy to choose the Nebraska Cornhusker. Bethune-Cookman has won four games to the Huskers’ one, and in basic football math, that makes the former the easy choice.
Not so fast…
The Wildcats aren’t used to facing anything resembling elite competition.
Not that Nebraska falls into that category this season, but the Cats have played Tennessee State, Virginia Lynchburg, Florida Atlantic, Howard, Savannah State, Mississippi Valley State, South Carolina State and, most recently, North Carolina A&T.
Nebraska hasn’t exactly played a slate of world-beaters, but they have two ranked opponents on their schedule up to this point and only one of their early-season foes fell outside of a Power 5 conference.
Winning records are important in the grand scheme of your season, but they mean nothing going into a contest. This game is proof.
Nebraska finally has a bit of momentum under its belt. But it’s not as if this team hasn’t played decently for stretches thus far.
Their loss two games ago came at the hands of Northwestern, but only by three points. Their first two contests of the season—versus Colorado and Troy—were also both losses, but they were decided by just five points each.
On the year, the Huskers are just 79th in points per game, but they’ve been better than that as far as overall offensive production goes. Passing, the team is 47th; rushing, the team is 219.9.
Against the Wildcats, Nebraska should be able to move that ball. The question will be whether or not it can convert.
We’re betting yes.

This game, which if you didn’t realize is a replacement for Nebraska having to cancel a contest earlier in the year, is really just about two things.
Nebraska finding a gimme in the schedule, and Bethune-Cookman getting a nice pay day.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UNDER
As much better as the Wildcats are in overall record than the Cornhuskers, you have to remember: The Wildcats are winless against FBS competition over the past four seasons.
That’s not likely to change in this one, even if the Huskers have had about as down a year as anyone would’ve imagined at this point in the process.
This should be an easy win for Nebraska. And that’s a good thing for a program looking to carry some momentum into a matchup with Ohio State coming up.
